City of Minot Transportation Plan 2035

Welcome to the 2035 Minot Long-Range Transportation Plan project website. The goal of this study is to identify and address the long-term transportation needs of the community. Minot is home to nearly 41,000 residents and is experiencing significant growth in the midst of the oil boom associated with the Bakken Formation, resulting in unprecedented traffic issues. To meet current and future demands, this Plan is being developed to help guide the City’s transportation initiatives.

The Plan will include an evaluation of the existing transportation system, development of travel demand forecasts consistent with the City’s recently adopted Comprehensive Plan, establishment of performance measures, evaluation of two rapidly developing transportation corridors (US 83 Bypass and the potential future Southwest Bypass), development and evaluation of prioritized system improvements, and the preparation of implementation policies and funding strategies for the recommended system improvements.
